Alla Tsank was born in Moscow. She has studied art since she was 10 years old. Alla graduated from Moscow Theatrical Art College in 1983 and was invited to work in one of the best theatres of the Russian Capital – the Mayakovsky Theater. For several years she directed her creativity toward stage design, costumes and props.
Alla immigrated to the United States in 1990, where she has continued her artistic career. Her recent works are created in oil on canvas, linen and paper. Her pallet contains calm earthy colors carefully built up by fine layers of mostly transparent oils.
Although Alla was inspired by the images from Renaissance Art, her current work has a distinct contemporary aesthetic that could be described as magic realism. These works reflect her deeply lyrical and uniquely poetical vision, a synthesis of European and American culture.
